Performance Management

GET IN TOUCH

Poor performance can happen for many reasons but often managers shy away from direct discussions with poorly performing employees. However, this not only leads to the employee working inefficiently or making mistakes which can be costly for the business but it also has a detrimental impact on team morale. Whether you can deal with performance issues on an informal basis or you need to implement a more formal performance improvement plan, we can help guide you through the process to follow.

What we can help with 

  • Creating and updating robust performance management policies and capability procedures that are fit for purpose.
  • Advice on the effective use of probationary periods, one-to-ones and appraisals.
  • Effective Performance Improvement Plans, including setting targets, reasonable timescales for improvement and support/training required.
  • Conducting performance management investigations and collating evidence.
  • Conducting performance management meetings including issuing written warnings.
  • Advice on managing remote employees.
  • Reasonable adjustments for disabled employees.
  • Managing poor attitude to work.
  • Dealing with appeals.
  • Avoiding unfair dismissal and discrimination claims.

We also regularly provide practical line manager training on performance management.
